Beleaguerment He deserved it, he's a little horse carrying a lot of weight and is very genuine,. He wasn't a dear horse and we're delighted he's had his day. The people involved in him are very good people and we're delighted to get a winner for them.

Loaded He’s ran good solid races and deserved to have a win. The mile suited him. It’s very unusual for a horse to come back from Hong Kong to win races in Dundalk but Alice (Fitzgerald) got him back. She bred him and sold him. She decided when he was so well handicapped to send him up to us and see if we could sweeten him up as he’d gone very sour out there. He got a good ride and they went good and fast which suited him. I might source a few more horses in Hong Kong now!

Blametheshady He's a nice horse. We bought him as a two-year-old,. He didn't look much early on but he kept improving and turned into a nice horse. I hope he gets a new home somewhere now!. If he was third I would have been delighted the way the race worked out. He'll improve a lot off that, he's very lazy. I was afraid of the stalls because he was very sluggish out of them at home. At the moment seven is ideal, even a mile the way he finished there, and he'll probably get further later on. I wouldn't go any shorter with him.

Silk Forest She’s always been a nice filly and we’ve taken our time with her. I picked out this race a while ago and I said we’d run here and then keep her for the spring next year.

Aleef He's been a great addition for us. That's three he's won and he's been placed a good few times,. He did it well there and Shane said he enjoyed the slower ground. He's won on fast ground and also has form in England on the all-weather. He's Martin Hanley's first horse so it's great.

Brunelle I can claim no credit for that. I went to the sales during the week, I had the entries done and had a line drawn through the race. I came back and seen that she was entered, the lads put her in,. I was protecting her for the Foran sales race but the lads in their wisdom put her in so I take absolutely no responsibility for that and fair play to them as they are after getting us a winner. She had earplugs in today. She has been a bit gassy. Not rushing her and going to the races the other day and taking her out, with the heavy ground at the Curragh, was ideal as it was a nice day out without killing her. We put the earplugs in today because she's a busy little girl. For the prize-money she'll go for the Forans final now. The question mark is the trip (seven furlongs) and the ground.

Cache Queen It was great that we kept faith because she'd gone off the boil a little bit. I had her in at Hamilton twice this year and they were cancelled. We were going to go again with her last week but we said we'd wait for this. We worked her up here and she worked well. It's great for Conor and Josephine Hughes, who own the Mullingar Park Hotel. They've kept faith in her. She won a couple of times last year and was very consistent but she just struggled then with a high mark. She's back down and hopefully she'll win again for them. We'll keep her on the go here and see what happens.
